How We Built a Serverless E-Commerce Website on AWS to Combat COVID-19
Lesson learned from manufacturing a physical product to building a scalable e-commerce platform on AWS In a phone conversation in March 2020, Olalekan Elesin informed me of an idea he thought about while doing his regular grocery shopping at DM Drogrie.

Some are mounted on walls, and some are portable enough to be carried around in handbags. But not portable enough to be worn on the wrist. Having spent years building scalable applications and data applications at various startups, we understood that every idea must be validated.
